A female Australian Wood Duck taken at Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, Australia. They are not
as colourful as the American Wood Ducks, but I think this lovely lady has a subtle beauty of her own.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.

    Greetings Trish; A wonderfully beauty, nicely seen and captured my friend.

  • Thanks Steve, for your comments and for adding this shot to your favourites. I love to visit Lake Burley Griffin whenever I visit Canberra and it is very easy to spend an hour or two watching these and other water birds that frequent the Lake.

    Great capture and very clear .My images on water with the sun nearly always come out dark .

  • Thanks so much for your lovely comments Lilian. I don’t have any solution to your problem, other than if the sun is behind your subject, try using your flash.

    terrific detail. similar but ajust a bit different from the wood ducks here looks like. i’m hoping to get the chance to see some this week-end with my sis

  • Dave, I’m so glad you liked this enough to add to your faves ! They are really quite pretty in their own way, but nowhere near the flamboyant colours of yours, particularly the male ! Thanks so much for your lovely comments !

    So beautiful! Adding her to my Favourites!

  • Kathryn, thank you very much for your beautiful comments and favourite ! Although much less “striking looking” than many other ducks, I think these have a subtle beauty of their own :)
